🖤 EVEN IN SOLITUDE GOD HEARS OUR PRAYERS 🖤 God heals the broken hearted and binds up their wounds (Psalm 147:3). He gives strength to the weary and renews the strength of the weak (Isa 40:29). Therefore no matter what you’re feeling right now be confident that God works for the good of those who love Him, those who have been called according to his purpose (Rom 8:28). God will fill you with joy and peace; all you have to do is trust him (Rom 15:13) and remember that nothing can separate us from the love of God (Rom 8:39).
I’m flawed but forgiven. Don’t look to me to be that example of perfection because you will always be disappointed. It will never be intentional but because we are all human and fleshly beings who have fallen short...each of us will disappoint you at some point. We will fall short BUT God is perfect and He sent His son to die for each of our imperfections. 🖤 Jesus didn’t say “Follow Christians,” He said “Follow Me”. 🖤 Look to Christ 1st and everything else will align and make sense. I’m just an imperfect woman of God trying to get to heaven and take a few people with me.
🖤 I WALKED TOWARD THE LIGHT AND THERE I FOUND YOU 🖤 • • I’m so grateful for you. Even when I try to hide in my own darkness, you remind me that there is light in this world. #GodPeople #AwesomeFriends #GodlyFriendships
🎧 FRIENDSHIP REQUIRES A GOOD SET OF EARS 🎧
🖤 YOU ARE NOT YOUR PAST 🖤 God never confuses what you’ve done with who you are...ISN’T THAT A BEAUTIFUL THING?
🦋 If it doesn’t EVOLVE you then it shouldn’t INVOLVE you 🦋 - - Limit your access to anything that is not making you better in some way. We spend a lot of time around people, in situations or doing things that have no purpose in our lives. Stop wasting your time on meaningless ventures.

💫 Warning some so-called Christians might get offended by this post💫 Christians can sometimes be the most judgmental people in the world. We...and I use this term because I don’t want to exclude any one...confuse our deliverance and forgiveness for permission to tell other people how to live their lives. We allow our opinions to push people, those who genuinely just want someone to listen and care, away from the cross. We compromise to what is convenient with the stage of life we are currently in. We alter the true meaning of scripture to fit our lukewarm lifestyles. We forget the plank in our eyes while casting stones at others. We politicize Christianity and try to attach the value of Christ to those of imperfect politicians. We have the ability to heal and mend but instead we sit back and watch. We have wisdom to give but instead we remain silent. We assume instead of asking questions that could provide clarity and truth. We criticize others relationships with Christ without looking back at our own. We judge marriages based on experience and not on God. We criticize friendship assuming it’s always more or that it’s ungodly. We see people hurting and we ignore it because it’s not our business. We have the ability to speak life into other people but pride and fear keep us away. We don’t apologize when we should. We ruin friendships with great people over one disagreement or we unite in our home meetings to critique the one who wore too much makeup or clothes fit too tight. We open our mouth more than our Bibles. We’re supposed to be the standard but instead we’re the blockage at the door of the church. There are lives attached to your destiny. Fix yourself, fix your heart, and allow the Holy Spirit to bring you to a point of humility in Him so that you can be effective in your position, purpose and calling. Your time as a Christian, a church leader, or in ministry does not mean you don’t have areas where you can grow. It means that you should be before the cross even more because there are responsibilities and standards attached to that calling on where God has you now. No stones thrown, just woke up with this on my mind so I had to document
💙 DO YOU SEE ME 💙 Some people see you and others only see who they want you to be. * * See me...search your heart and find mine. See me...search your mind and find thoughts of me. See me...search your truth and find my honesty...See me...open your eyes and view only what God could give you permission to see...SEE ME! • * It is going to be a powerful moment when God blesses me with the opportunity to look into someone’s eyes and call it home. So until then, I’ll stay hidden until you, whoever you are, SEES ME 💙 * Signed Z. Smith @ChoZynWordZ

💛 Victory belongs to Jesus 💛 • • No matter what you have gone through know that we win! The enemy has tried to steal, kill, and destroy but we stand here unharmed and stronger because God has brought us through the fire. He has given us victory over every attack. He has given us victory over sickness and disease. He has given us victory in every aspect of our lives. Stay faithful and stay the course. Doors are opening and God has already gone before us. He has prepared the way we simply must remain obedient and keep the course. • • • “The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.” 1 Corinthians 15:56-58 NIV
🖤 TRANSITION 🖤 • • These past few days have been an incredible testimony of God’s faithfulness in my life. I spent one week in the USA and returned to Japan earlier this week focused on the things God has right in front of me. Upon my return to Japan, God has strategically placed me in specific places, one of which I didn’t appreciate until I prayed on it, but God knew I needed to see something with my own eyes so I’m grateful for that preordained encounter. • • God has confirmed things one after another, He has healed areas of my life that only He could touch and He continues to condition me for everything that is ahead. I’m still a work in progress but daily I’m striving to be better, do better, and just be happy with me 😊 Unpacking to repack but that what makes this season great. Greater is on the horizon. Healing is on the horizon. Miracles are on the horizon. Acceleration is on the horizon. Elevation is on the horizon. Breakthrough is on the horizon. • • Transition...it’s time!
